  • Charity for Lunch With Apple Boss Tim Cook Closes, Earns $200k

    Three weeks ago, Apple C.E.O. Tim Cook auctioned off a lunch, tour of the Apple campus, and two V.I.P. passes to Apple special events, such as WWDC or other product announcements via Charitybuzz. The money raised was to be donated to charitable services.

    On Wednesday, the auction has closed with a value of approximately $200,000. Charitybuzz notes that the money will go to Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, which has the goal of making the world a better place:

    Although $200,000 is a lot of money, it's significantly less than similar auctions to dine with Tim Cook have raked in in the past. MacRumors reports that in 2013, a similar charity raised over $600,000 and that in 2014, a similar charity raised over $300,000.

    The winner will now receive word from Apple about what to do next; the price includes the cost of the meal, which will take place at a mutually agreed-upon time and place, as Cook noted.
